A couple of high major road games, a two-week stretch where we pretend that we're in the Patriot League, and a pair of home D-III games. Overall, nothing particularly noteworthy.
CCSU should just join the AE based on their schedule! Of course I realize football does not allow that to happen. I’m glad to see CCSU back on UNH’s schedule. I know we’ve played each other the past several years in a secret scrimmage.Central Connecticut just announced this season's 13-game non-conference schedule, that includes 5 America East teams and is highlighted by participation in the Tipoff Classic @ Mohegan Sun and games at ACC, A-10, Big East, Big Ten, and Pac-12 opponents.

Surprisingly, we have "only" played URI 34 times. And we are a...umm, sub-standard...3-31 all-time against them. All 3 wins were in 1975 and 1976. Glory days.UVM was also in the same conferences (New England and Yankee) as Maine, UNH and URI, so they probably played 100 times or so also.
Per URI's records, it has played 48 games versus Vermont (URI leads 41-7) with the first game not being played until 1949. All but 2 of these meetings were then played from 1949-1976.UVM was also in the same conferences (New England and Yankee) as Maine, UNH and URI, so they probably played 100 times or so also.
That’s what the UVM record book says, but they really are 7-41 all-time. UVM, for whatever reason (likely just oversight), does not include games vs URI prior to 1960. In fact, the record book is chock full of errors, let’s just leave it at that. Pretty embarrassing for a D1 program.Surprisingly, we have "only" played URI 34 times. And we are a...umm, sub-standard...3-31 all-time against them. All 3 wins were in 1975 and 1976. Glory days.
What is surprising is URI's lack of New England/NY opponents on this year's schedule, regardless of conference affiliation.
URI will play just 2 New England opponents (Brown and PC) and 1 from New York (LIU).
By comparison, CCSU will play just 2 (of 13) teams from outside of NY/New England (Penn St. and Arizona St.) this season.
Clearly, the 2 schools have very different scheduling parameters, but I'm still somewhat shocked the Rams don't "buy" more games from regional opponents. Of course URI has to play more National programs from Quad 1 if they want to be seen as a NCAA contender, but home games vs WKU, Nicholls State, and LIU don't sound like they are very appealing to locals.
